Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing is designed to help older people who need some support to live independently. It is ideal for people who are looking for the security or companionship that comes with being part of a community. It is not suitable for people who need full time residential or nursing care.

Most sheltered housing schemes in our area are for people aged over 55, although there are some schemes in Worthing that consider applicants from the age of 50.

Usually sheltered housing schemes will be made of a number of self-contained homes, each with their own front door. Each home has access to a 24-hour emergency call service, and a scheme manager provides support to residents (although they usually manage a number of different schemes so don't live on site).
